Product Details Edit

We know that doing the best repair requires the best tools. That's why we've spent the last few years looking for the best opening tool we could provide to our users. We've tried razor blades, spatulas, spikes, pins, picks, and many custom designed opening tools. iSesamo is the best opening tools we tried. Made in Italy, we have been providing these from Dotterpod since they were all handmade. Now popularized by iFixit, this tool is sought after by repair shops around the globe. In the hands of a repair professional, this opening tool will make short work of popping open even the most difficult iPod cases.

Crafted for one purpose. ¶ 

A thin sheet of springy steel, designed to slide easily between panels and into microscopic cracks. An expertly curved tip, perfected to get the right angle on electronic casing clips. And with a no-slip grip, this tool is much more effective and reliable than other case opening methods.

Double edged sword. ¶ 

Made from metal means it’s longer lasting than plastic opening tools, which rarely last for more than one repair. It can release the rusty or bound clips where plastic tools may have failed in the past. However, being made of metal also means the tool can and will scratch or mar softer materials like case plastic. It requires a steady hand to use properly, but does work best.

 

Stories

My Problem

As all Kids, mine also love elektronics. But loving also means taking care. And taking care also means repairing them: themselves.

My Fix

It is not the first time we repaired an iPhone, but we realized last time, that good tools, are half the way.

My Advice

We use YouTube Videos for instruction. that is sufficient.

My Problem

I work for a Cell Phone repair company. This tool seemed optimal for the repairs I get on a daily basis.

My Fix

Went smooth as heck. Opens iphone 5's no problem. Got an iPad Mini? Now that baby is open. Need a replacement iPad 2 Digitizer? BAM iSesamopened!

My Advice

The flexibility is a little off to get used to for prying but overall the tool works perfectly for tablets and phones.

My Problem

Need a little help getting the bevel off a laptop lcd screen

My Fix

Replaced the screen on the laptop and is working just fine now.

My Advice

do it with care.

My Problem

Iphone 5 home button repair

My Fix

It was excellent !!!

My Advice

Beware with the isesamo because it can scratch your device very easily

My Problem

Needed to get the fan to cycle on and off to prevent overheating.

My Fix

Went fine. The tools enabled me to open the case and push down the thermal sensor cable more firmly in its socket.

My Advice

Don't be concerned about opening the Mac Mini case. It is not that difficult.

My Problem

I teach an ipad repair class to a group of 8th graders. This order was just to replace some tools. We are going to give the isesamo tool a try. Our best tool so far has been a metal spudger. It has a triangular end an a curve spatula end. You sell one that looks like it but the spatula end is to dull to get between the glass and bezel. I hope the isesamo tool does the trick. We will repair a couple hundred iPads this year and your tools are indispensable.

My Fix

We have not had a chance yet to give the tools a run. I am sure they will be just fine.

My Advice

Find a supplier of sharper metal spudgers

My Problem

DOCKING STATION NEEDED REPLACEMENT

My Fix

TOOK ABOUT 1 HOUR AND A COUPLE BEERS

My Advice

CAREFUL TO PUT THE PARTS IN THE SAME ORDER YOU REMOVED THEM SO YOU CAN PUT THEM BACK. THE RIGHT TOOLS ARE A MUST.

My Problem

Ageing battery

My Fix

Flawless! Great video instructions.

My Advice

I forgot to use windex but looks like the signal strenth was not affected

My Problem

I am a repair tech who works on phones, media players, tablets, laptops, and a plethora of other electronics. When I began my employment for the company I currently manage a location for, a good friend of mine, Dean, purchased an iFixit tool roll for me as a congratulations gift after a long hard job search. These tools have allowed me to quickly become one of the top techs in my company. I have been with this company since April of this year (2013), and I was recently promoted to store manager at a major location. I don't believe I would have been able to achieve such landmarks in such a short time without the quality tools I have in my arsenal from iFixit!

My Fix

The 1.0 blade bit is incredibly helpful. I use it on almost every repair I do. The aluminum pro shaft is very smooth and allows for speedy work. I use the opening tool every time i need to remove a screen. And the bits that come with the kit have enabled me to perform repairs and tasks that none of the other techs working with me are able to do. I would, and do, highly recommend iFixit tools to anyone who works on electronics, except the other guys at work.... I enjoy being the individual that my co-workers yield the more difficult repairs to!

My Advice

Electronic repairs are not very complex once you have done a few dozen. Although, there are some people who excel in this field. If you happen to be one of those more talented techs and want to rise above the rest, an investment in good tools is invaluable! iFixit tools are among my most preferred tools.
